Overview


A baby changes everything.

It can be messy.

It can also be beautiful…

Pregnant at fifteen, and choosing to keep her child, Laura knew that her life would never be the same. Through her compelling story, and stories of others-parents struggling with miscarriage, infertility, abusive relationships, addictions, abortions, and those mourning the children they placed for adoption-we witness beauty and redemption rising from the ashes of lost hope.

For young mothers, fathers, leaders and pastors, Laura's stories, practical tools, and guidance for unplanned pregnancy provide hope, courage and healing, compelling us to move past mere survival to choosing a full, abundant life.

What a powerful message! "Choose Zoe" was a surprisingly complete view of a true Pro-Life mindset. The author covers many aspects of womanhood, complete with struggles, triumphs, tragedy, redemption and joy! I read this book as part of enrichment for the women's group I host, and I've got to say, it became a support group of sorts. This book is so incredibly relatable on so many levels. If you are a person you should read this. It is highly likely that someone sitting in the chair next to you has encountered a circumstance in these chapters. Laura Lynn Hughes' heart shows in the pages of this book, both in her experiences and in the practical advice she gives in how to navigate it's topics. Happy reading!
